104 is my max. They tell me protein denatures at higher temps, whatever that means.<quoted text>
I can't see stars in the detail I used to, and at night it is important for me to limit my exposure upwards. Fine during the day, I blend into the haze. But night is not my best time for me to sit out in the open. Just a simple misunderstanding, really. We could talk about it, but they tend to get nervous and over reactive.
103 is perfect for long soaks. Love it here during the winter and the steam rises, lit by the sunlight coming through the windows and skylight.
Ever been to those natural hot springs? They have some HOT water in some of those. Pagosa Springs, CO went up to 108 or 110 in one of them. That can kill you after a long sit and you get up. Set in 106 for about 45 minutes at Ojo Caliente in NM. Thought I would pass out and die when I got out. Sure lowers that blood pressure. Mine is low to begin with.
I was at one of those natural hot springs, but I can't remember where it was. It was on a hillside, and they had pools scattered about, at different temperatures. Now I'm driving myself crazy trying to remember where it was.
One nice thing about my hot tub--it heats up very quickly, I have a heater pump that's for a small pool.
